20 November 2013

A seminar of imminent international and local experts will be held this Sunday 24thNovember at the Mandarin Court Hotel to reveal the true risks and hazards of the Lynas Advanced Materials Plant (LAMP).

Mr Tan Bun Teet from SMSL said, “We are fortunate to have so many experts coming forward to share their scientific and technical knowledge as wel as experience with us for Malaysia.  They have all taken time out from their very busy schedule working mostly pro-bono to support us in our endeavours to fight for a safer and cleaner Malaysia.”

Of the international experts are:

  • Gerhard Schmidt, a Senior Scientist and a toxic and radioactive waste expert from the Oeko Institute in Germany who will give a critical overview of the Lynas waste and pollution management system and explain the implication of its deficiencies.
  • Dr Peter Karamboskos, a practicing nuclear medicine physician and radiologist, an academic and the public representative on the Radiation Health Committee of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) will speak on the risks of the Lynas radioactive waste disposal proposals and the latest international radiation safety standard and guidelines
  • Professor Wang Guo Zheng from China, an academic who has carried out extensive research into rare earth waste management will speak on the risks and hazards of recycling rare earth waste as proposed by Lynas
    • Professor Yoshihiko Wada from the Faculty of Economics, Doshisha University, Kyoto, Japan, is a specialist in environmental and social impact analysis of uranium and rare earth mining activities, nuclear energy development, as well as war.  He will be speaking about the Unethical and Unsustainable Economic Model of “Exporting Pollution” based on the Lynas case study and the Japanese financing of the project.

Several high calibre local professionals will join our international experts to discuss and develop strategy forward to build a safer Malaysia.

“We hope thinking Malaysians will similarly come out to show the Government that we are determined to fight for a better future for this country!” Concluded Mr Tan
